Come Dine With Us
All our ships have at least 3 restaurants. You can make dining as laid-back or as formal as you like. Our chefs will take your taste buds around the world at one of our self-serveries. Or you can sit down to a multi-course dinner in a more formal setting where it’s all about waiter service from suited and booted staff. And don’t worry if you’re feeling peckish between meals. From snacks on deck to afternoon tea and midnight buffets, you’ll never go hungry. To mix up the choices even more, there’s a regular captain’s dinner, too, where the menu gets as much a dressing-up as you do.
There’s a talent pool’s worth of kitchen staff on our ships. Our experienced chefs have developed their skills by working all around the world. Chef Bastillo, one of our executive chefs on board, started his foodie education before he even started school. We caught up with him for a chat…
When did you first take an interest in cooking?
I grew up in the Philippines, and my grandparents taught me about food preservation from an early age. They taught me about how ants store food for rainy days. From then on, I understood how important food was.
What’s your food philosophy?
My passion is sharing culinary knowledge. I do demonstrations on board. I also love inventing. The possibilities are endless for creating new ways of presentation and combining different ingredients. I refuse to stop creating the sort of menus you can’t find in cookery books.
What do you do when you’re not cooking?
I enjoy fishing with friends and gardening. I believe I have a magical touch with growing greens.
What’s your favourite dish to cook?
It’s choucroute à l’alsacienne – a rich platter of sausages and ham on a bed of sauerkraut. It’s not to be missed, especially with a cold bottle of beer.
Discover our entertainment
When it comes to entertainment, we know how to put on a good show. And we don't just mean at night. During the day, you can join in with poolside games and quizzes. And, by night, there's all sorts going on, from game shows and relaxing live music to comedy acts and West End-style shows.
